USER COMMENTS
 
"All of my astro photograph with a Moravian G2-8300FW camera are high quality than all my photography in the past. The combination of high quality Newtonian telescope and high-definition CCD camera provides the best resolution."

Tsutomu Chikazawa (Japan)
 

"Attached are my first light images with the G2-8300 CCD camera. I have to say that I am nothing less than completely impressed not only by how slick the camera looks mechanically but also how quickly I was up and running using the supplied SIMS software."

Robert Knox QLD Australia

"I was keen to see just how quickly I could get a Moravian G2 series camera up and running compared to the usual nightmare driver and compatibility issues often encountered with other cameras. After fitting my LRGB filter set, connecting the USB cable, my computer detected the camera seamlessly and installed the necessary drivers from the CD. After installing SIMS software and having a quick play, I was imaging my first object within 20 minutes out of the box! Setting up the G2-8300 was a breeze!

Dave Price (QLD)

Moravian G1-300 Planetary Camera and Auto-guider

One word for this mutli-use super sensitive camera / guider – Brilliant!! It’s lightweight physically but a heavyweight performer. I really like the concept whereby the Moravian SIPS software controls the camera to simply take a frame, move the mount, pauses to take another frame and then compares the two to set calibration in RA+ , RA-, Dec + and Dec - works very well. Its simple and quick to use (less than a minute) and works well driving my NEQ6 precisely. The camera also performs nicely as a general imaging camera for many DSO's, planetary and lunar work as well.


Just dumped the old dead SSAG and QHY PhD set and am very please I invested in this device – for a lot less than double the cost of the SSAG. Thanks once again for the great service and hands-on advice.
